The weather in the UK can be unpredictable and the IMC Rating will allow the holder of the rating to fly in the UK only out of site of the surface and in poor weather conditions and poor visibility, and also use the landing and navigational aids at most airports. The course is a minimum of 15hrs and a test with an examiner. At Lomac we have in-house instructors and examiners for the IMC Rating, together with all the relevant study material, that can be obtained at Ops.
The EASA Night Rating can be added to your EASA PPL and will allow you to fly the aircraft at night in VMC Visual Meteorological Conditions.
The Night Rating is a 5hr course, with no test or ground examination involved. Three hours of the course is dual with one of our Night Rating Instructors and one hour of dual night navigation plus five take off and full stop landings at night as the pilot in command.
This rating is a valuable addition to the pilots licence and is usually taught through the winter months or in the hours of darkness any other time of the year.
